Great, more Yankees on ESPN

The 2007 New York Yankees haven't exactly played up to their potential this season. Granted, there's still three months to go and therefore time to make a playoff run.

The Yanks still are a staple of ESPN's baseball broadcasts because of ratings, interest, national fan base, yada, yada, yada.

So with the Bombers struggling what does the Worldwide Leader do? It breaks out a Yankees' mini-series of course. During the course of its baseball coverage, ESPN has been rolling out preview of "The Bronx is Burning," which is based on the the 1977 Yankees.

Is it just me or did George Steinbrenner discreetly buy a controlling share of ESPN? Sure seems like it.
